The Sonos Beam an incredible Product for your home entertainment
This new product from Sonos is not just a speaker, it is a capable manager to all your other smart assistants. The Beam, measuring about 2 feet, has a powerful sound and allows support for digital assistants Alexa and Siri. They plan to add Google Assist too. With this multi-company support, you can use this speaker to control pretty much all your devices, including your television and sound system.
These features have led to tech geeks writing excellent reviews. There are some among us that are devoted to certain tech companies buying only the products they sell, most of us, however, have devices from different companies. An iPhone, a Samsung TV, and perhaps Alexa. The advantage the Sonos Beam has over other speakers is its ability to connect with all of these. The advantages of multi-device use aside, the primary function of the Beam is as a speaker, and that is where it excels.
While most speakers have either excellent bass capacity or are better at the higher sounds, this one handles the entire range. Explicitly tuned to play television and music, the Beam doesn’t just fill the room with sound but directs it at the listener. With the full range woofer, it prioritises clarity for vocals giving it a distinct advantage to your average speakers.
Even though it is a cheaper model when compared to the Playbar, there is no difference in playback between the two. Small and sleek, this speaker can fit comfortably in your entertainment system. You can even use the wall mount to set it up if you prefer. The HDMI cable combined with the voice controls allow you access to functions without needing a remote. You can switch your television on or off, change the channel, volume among other things.
You never have to worry about losing your remote again. Easy to set-up, the Beam offers options for the number of speakers, for the best sound you buy the 5.1 set, but of course that increases the price substantially. You can connect the beam to your home entertainment system as well.
The pros of this sound device are:
- Seamless ability to connect to various digital assistants
- Excellent sound quality
- Television control
- HDMI support • Easy to set up
- Affordability The Cons:
- Since it is small, it isn’t suitable for big rooms
